Once on probation, the student must meet satisfactory attendance. If the student achieves satisfactory attendance after the probationary period ends, the student will no longer be on probation. If the student violates satisfactory attendance, that is, if three (3) or more absences are acquired while on probation, the student may be placed on suspension or termination altogether. The executive committee will decide the penalty after meeting with the student as to why satisfactory absences policy was violated.

Make-up work: Students must make arrangements to make-up course work with the instructor; however, absences will remain on record.

LEAVE OF ABSENCE

Students may apply for a Leave of Absence (LOA) only in case of serious illness, death in the family, or other emergency circumstances. Written requests are reviewed on an individual basis and must be approved by the Executive committee. Only one written request for a leave of absence will be considered during any twelve (12) month period. A LOA not to exceed thirty (30) calendar days (or up to sixty (60) calendar days for verified medical leave) will be granted for verified emergencies. Students who fail to return to class as scheduled following a LOA, will be withdrawn from the program. Any Students making regularly scheduled tuition payments to the school remain under that obligation during a leave of absence.

STUDENT CONDUCT

Students attending American Heritage College are expected to treat all personnel, other students, and the physical premises with consideration. At the discretion of the Executive committee, students may by suspended or terminated from school for any of the following reasons: cheating; serious incident of an intoxicated or drugged state of behavior; possession of drugs, alcohol, or weapons on school premises; behavior creating a safety hazard to other persons at the school; disobedient or disrespectful behavior to another student, a staff, or faculty member; or any other determined infraction of conduct.

SATISFACTORY ACADEMIC PROGRESS

Satisfactory academic progress is defined as meeting acceptable standards as defined by predetermined objectives of the institution. These objectives are directly correlated to the performance standards set by American Heritage College.

Students are graded by objective written skills based on materials presented in synchronous/classroom sessions and required assignments, as well as on the acquisition of practical demonstrable skills. Any assignment not submitted timely or any test missed will be graded zero (0). Students will have one (1) week to make-up the required work or the zero (0) will be included on the student's permanent record. Students are permitted to make-up missed tests and/or assignments during the training program, however, part of the grade will be deducted. The final exam may be re-taken after one (1) week with part of the grade deducted.

American Heritage College utilizes a Standards Based Grading System to assess student performance:

Mastery = 90% - 100%

Advanced = 80% - 90%

Proficient = 70% - 80%

Little or No Mastery = <70%


STATEMENT OF SATISFACTORY ACADEMIC PROGRESS

Students are graded as they complete units of the curriculum. Grades are determined as a compilation of examination scores (written and laboratory/practical) and such other criteria and observations as the school deems appropriate in the training of technical personnel.

To maintain Satisfactory Academic Progress, a student must achieve a percentage score of 70% or higher in every module of the course and must have a percentage score of 70% or higher for the overall course. To maintain Satisfactory Academic Progress, a student attending classes on a full-time basis has a maximum time frame of 1.5 times the original length of the course in which to complete all graduation requirements.

A student not maintaining Satisfactory Academic Progress at any time during the course period, may be placed on academic probation for one week. At the end of the probationary period, if the student has not corrected the progress deficiencies, the student shall be deemed ineligible to graduate and may be subject to termination at the discretion of the Executive committee.

In the case of deficiencies that the executive committee did not deem severe enough for termination, the student will then be obligated to extend his/her course of study according to the time frame described above. In the event that the student has not corrected any deficiencies or met all other requirements for graduation, by the end of the allowable time frame, the student shall be subject to expulsion at the discretion of the Executive committee.

In order to graduate, American Heritage College requires that all students complete 100% of all classroom and practical/laboratory instruction in a prescribed course, and discharge all financial obligations to the school. Students completing these requirements will receive a Certificate of Mastery in their program of study. California statute requires that a student who successfully completes a course of study be awarded a Diploma/Certificate of Completion.

TRANSCRIPT REQUEST

Students will be provided one official transcript of their grades upon completion of their program of study. Requests for additional transcripts must be made in writing to the American Heritage College.
